words are prisons

seemingly locking I in them

happening on a daily basis

on a second-to-second basis


a word is uttered

and reality seemingly is captured


finally it’s known

arrived at

makes sense

becomes familiar


but it comes with a price tag

and in paying it

there is


a loss of freedom

of transparency



with words comes a heaviness

comes solidity

light becomes tight

color becomes shape

oneness births manyness

what is turns into what’s supposed to be


a sensation is present

a word tags it and sadness is born

following sadness many words may come

and a story is born

and a character is born


a simple raw sensation

bridges over to an imagined other shore

and duality is born

between the banks of dreamed opposites

a character floats in the river of life


a character living in a word

and in that word life stands in apparent captivity

Seeing seems trapped in its own imaginings


but now

just for a second


I don’t have a name


imagine how it feels

imagine the freedom


but go beyond imagining


I don’t actually have a name



nothing has a name


a chair is not the word chair

nor the sound chair

there is no chair

there is no sky

or world

or persons


words are prisons




random sounds

absolutely disconnected from the things themselves


life has no words


in the Seeing that is I

nothing has a name

words are just objects of Seeing

just like the objects referred to by those very words

the object-chair, the word-chair, the sound-chair

three completely distinct objects

three shades of One Seeing


feel the freedom of no words

no concepts

everything is exactly as it is

everything is exactly as it seems

beyond words

what could be there except

what is seen as it’s seen?

who could deceive who

if there is only one?


nothing is as it seems

is a precious advice given

to the idea of a person

but emptied of words

everything is as it seems


but even that is too much labor


Seeing Is
